I have an inherited Windows 7 machine which I have tried to reset the password on- without success. I have tried creating a CD, but when it boots, an alarm-ish type of bell-tone sounds until I hit the power button. Then it boots normally, but no luck. I tried the recovery cd, then command prompt but it returned "The system cannot find the path specified" when I tried to create the copy of "sethc.exe". Upon examining the directory, turns out there is no file name sethc.exe. I'm at an impasse and hoping someone can help- thanks loads! ...Fred
